8-7-71 - I only heard it once on gdradio but was very impressed. I have not had a chance to compare it to the 8-6-71 because I do not have DP35

Do you have the "Phil Zone" release? That has the Aud 8-6-71.

It's 4-29-71! (okay, 8-6-71 is astonishing, too).

At the rate we're going, we'll both be there soon enough!

Point taken.

I'll look forward to meeting you there, my friend!!!

HtH is of course subjective; but I think both versions 4-29 and 8-06 are over the top, exquisitely deep, filled to the brim monsters. I guess I give the nod to 4-29 because a) I was there an b)I have had it on tape since 1972 or so.

Truth be told, 8-6-71 is up there for me for similar reasons: at Moe's Books on Telegraph, it was one of the first bootleg albums (a double album!) I picked up on the boys...$5 or so in the early 70s, just prior to availability of tapes on a large scale (at least for us out there then). Great sound from that AUD to the vinyl pressed in some out of the way place (?), however they did such things.

Good enough for Phil!!! Though I'll never understand how they left 4-29 off of Skullfuck.

This really has me going...wouldn't it have been amazing? Just imagine that there instead of the OOne (shocking for me, eh? But, it had seen its peak in 68, 69 perhaps)? It really would have been an excellent addition/substitution. Even if 8-6-71 wasn't available!

Hindsight being 50-50, I agree. First, TOO is out of context, just as NFA-GDTRFB misses the powerful leap back into NFA that gave that suite its magic.

Second--why so many cover songs? Okay--Me and My Uncle is a great performance, but . . . . only one Pig tune? No Kingbee either?

Well, everyone has their complaints, second guesses, etc.
For whatever lapses it may have had, it was a great treat when it was released.

no, i have dp 35, which is 8/7 san diego and part of another show, and 8/6 is far superior. it does contain the jam from the might before, but mostly phil is leading the way, jerry is not as into it as he is on 8/6. a nice hard to hande none the less, but i believe 8/6 may be the best the boys ever mustered.
